This 70 square meters apartment with two bedrooms has been renovated by FORMA. Situated in Eixample district from Barcelona, in a building that was built in 1930, the apartment has undergone many changes over the years that have affected the original architecture and transformed it into a dark and unattractive space. Divided excessively, the apartment required an „defoliation” action in order to restore the initial construction elements: ceramic vaulted ceilings, pavements, metallic beams and original wood joinery.
For a better uniformity of the space and to harness natural light, the entire apartment was painted in white. The heart of the apartment is the dining room where it was placed a table of 3.10 meters long and a bench of 5.20 meters along the wall and it can be also used as storage space. The used wood forms a harmonious unit with the old architectural elements while the white paint emphasizes very well the floor tile with floral patterns. Due to some sliding doors, the space can provide greater intimacy or it may be extended.
“We designed interior boundaries to create different spaces with large openings placed to diffuse the sense of confinement. Based on a sliding door system, we can transform the space to provide the necessary privacy, greater intimacy or, expand the space.”
